Interesting question. I’ve only taken my engagement ring off for showering and cleaning since I got it, so it stays on. Whether I’m at home or out makes no difference.

Just my wedding band. I did wear my engagement ring for a few hours yesterday because I missed it, but my wedding band is comfy and practical for around the house.

Yes, I’m wearing my engagement ring (and even getting dressed!) I find that routine has been helping me stay as close to normal as possible.

Mostly no – I’m 33 weeks pregnant and have fat little sausage fingers right now, so it’s getting harder and harder to take my wedding band off these days!

I feel a bit naked if I don’t wear my rings. I put the engagement ring on right after my glasses. It kind of signals the start of the day. But I wear my wedding ring all the time (unless I’m showering or working out), so that’s been the same.

I always wear my rings (unless I’m doing messy baking/cooking) so yes I’m still wearing my rings.

I took mine off, and I stopped wearing a watch, as well.

I read that too much hand sanitizer can hurt the metal. Before I learned that, I purposely rubbed some into the stone! ::facepalm

Not married yet. But on days I work from home I’m in my pjs…meaning no jewelry and that includes my engagement ring (and future band). If I go out for any reason, then yeah, I put it on!

I definitely still am! Gives me something to stare at when we’re in quarantine 🙂 I’ve been keeping them on too when I was my hands just so I can get any bacteria off of them, rather than pick up my dirty rings after cleaning my hands. I clean them with dish soap and a tooth brush more often now, too.

Ive Been permanently working from home for over 2 years now, so I typically put on my rings when I wake up, and will wear them 85% of the time, even during quarantine… I haven’t left the house and gone anywhere in over 7 days… but today I kept them off, they had a good soak and clean an I decided to put them in their case, I did a lot of deep cleaning today which I don’t wear them for anyways!

No. I put it on when I leave the house, and I am no longer really leaving the house. I put it on to run to Duane Reade earlier today but that’s about it these days.

Yes. I’ve been wearing mine “to work”. I find that I have to get showered and dressed even working at home, otherwise I just have a hard time getting into work mode. My engagement ring is part of what makes me feel dressed and ready for the day and I just enjoy wearing it, so I still put it on, even if I’m the only one who can see it. I never take my wedding band off, so obviously I’m wearing that too.

I was going to work everyday up until now. This week I’m only physically going into the office once a week and working from home the rest of the time. My work is very slow and I’m able to do other things at home as long as I’m available so I’ll be working on home renos. Chances are I won’t be wearing it that often because of that. But if I’m not painting or anything laborious, I’ll be wearing mine!
